Luton Town produced a stunning performance to thrash Brighton & Hove Albion 4-0 at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday night, moving out of the Premier League relegation zone in the process.
Elijah Adebayo was the star of the show, scoring a hat-trick for the Hatters, becoming the first Luton player to achieve the feat in the top flight since 1990. Luton scored twice inside the opening three minutes, with Adebayo nodding home the opener and Chiedozie Ogbene doubling their lead. Adebayo added his second and Luton’s third late in the first half before completing his hat-trick with a header from a corner early in the second period.
“I feel – we feel – the best way for us to go in this league is to attack,” Hatters manager Rob Edwards told BBC Match of the Day. “We’ve done that to quite a few teams – it’s how we play.
“With a result and performance like this, a few people might take notice of it a little bit more. We’re going to keep driving the players.
“We have to keep our foot down. We can’t afford to stop because we’re not good enough to do that.”
Luton’s next Premier League match is against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday, while Brighton travel to Arsenal.
